The English alt-rock band CWM were introduced last year and are currently working towards their forthcoming LP Mate? What!.
Their third song to be revealed – Homely Streets – finds CWM in a different corner of the room to their last feature.
The new song has a grungy undertow that smudges as it surfaces from the speakers with the dampened instrumentation laying at a juxtaposition to the snappy drumkit, which affords Homely Streets captivating layers of texture while the expressive vocal delivers an unanticipated melodic tint to the track.
The England based world-beat collective The Turbans release their eponymous début LP on the 6th of April.
A collective drawn from wide geo-political spaces, The Turbans have spent many years touring around the world bringing their vision of inclusive nature of music to a global fan-base and the eleven track album (available on bandcamp) is a drawing together of those ideas from the past seven years.
The Australian synth-rock outfit Hedge Fund released the single True Romance on the 16th.
Having regularly featured since their introduction in 2015, though not for over a year now, True Romance finds Hedge Fund in more introspective mood than music of theirs previously shared.
The gap in new material and the more sadcore reflection are due to the same reasons. A tumultuous year has seen the death of a father and the breakdown of a marriage for the lead singer Will Colvin, resulting in a lyric that contemplates the loss of the most important people in ones life and the associated frustration, sense of failure and feeling of desperate isolation, yet through the dour thoughts the music is of comforting embrace as the instruments pulse through the speakers as the synth floats listlessly, creating a cathartic moment of sadness.
